Wedgwood Sidewalk Project: Concrete pouring begins on NE 83rd St

We have begun pouring concrete on NE 83rd St. Crews will be working to build new sidewalk and driveways along the length of NE 83rd St, beginning at the east end of the street and will work west down the hill towards Ravenna Ave NE.

Representatives from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) attended our March Board of Trustees meeting to give an update on the 2018 Paving Project in Northeast Seattle. The paving project includes a number of changes to 35th Ave NE between NE 45th Street and NE 87th Street.

One Neighborhood’s Loss, Is Another’s Gain

At the end of March, our beloved local fiddler and civic activist Dass Adams, will once again take up his roots and head south to continue his civic engagement in the hotbed of activism lovingly known as Berzerkley. (Perhaps people’s park wields more power than we know.) Dass leaves us at the WCC thus ending this phase in the PNW and blazes a new path. Dass has navigated his way around the US as many of us reformed easterners have, starting in NY, a stint in DC, and Montana.

The site plans include three row houses along 35th Ave NE, with two townhouses and one single-family residence behind.

NE 95th Street Sidewalk Project Update

Construction is moving slower than anticipated on the NE 95th St Sidewalk Project, due in part to a few weather delays.
